Microsoft files a patent for a dual-screen phone

A new Microsoft patent application hints at something we could probably see in the future: a dual-screen device with a detachable display, and content changing dynamically on one of the screens depending on the other. The two screens offer separate functions and one practical implementation of the second screen could be as a remote control for the larger display.
This would have been just another concept having no grounds in reality a couple of months ago, but with devices like the dual-screen Kyocera Echo and the upcoming Sony S2 tablet, this Microsoft concept seems much closer to becoming real than before.
Whether this is a concept done by a Nokia engineer developing solutions for WP7 remains a mystery to me. Not a Nokia fanboy but it is possible especially knowing that Nokia engineers are hard at work internally developing and overhauling Windows Phone OS.
